American Express Certification

Security evaluations and functional test for American Express (AMEX) payment applications
AMEX-compliant products must pass an AMEX approval process that requires security evaluations and functional tests performed by an AMEX-accredited laboratory. AMEX has different specifications depending on the type of product.
As part of the EMVCo and GlobalPlatform associations, AMEX approval process includes compliance with EMV and GP specifications.
Applus+ is an AMEX-accredited laboratory to conduct functional test and security evaluations according to AMEX specifications, an EMVCo-accredited laboratory and a GlobalPlatform qualified laboratory. Thus we are able to perform the complete set of tests required in the AMEX Enabled program.
